This is a game for people who have always been interested in playing an RPG but don't know where to start. This is a game for people who have been trying to convince their friends to play RPGs with them but RPGs are "too much." This is a game for people who want to play RPGs but don't have the time for a full length campaign. If you're looking for a Pick Up And Play RPG, this game is for you.
In this Powered by the Apocalypse game, the world as you know it is entirely composed of fortified city-states connected only through trade across the harsh deserts, rocky steppes, and mountains that separate them.This is a world filled with monsters and magic that are only kept at bay by the walls of the cities. You are traders that work the trade routes that hold civilization together, spending time in towns as well as on the road.
In this pick up and play RPG, character creation takes only a few minutes and the game can be played with little preparation. This zine will include all of the information, rules, and character sheets to get started. All you'll need to bring to the table is a few pencils and a few six-sided dice. The final goal of this project is to take this game to an even more accessible format - your phone - so everyone can easily download an app and play immediately.
Risks and challenges
The major issues are needing to order enough copies so every backer can receive theirs as well have enough left over to distribute some in person, as well as completing the layout design in a timely fashion, but as the game has been completed the only delays will be in the finishing touches.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
